Port Orchard is the county seat of Kitsap County and has the distinction of being the oldest city in the county. The city of Port Orchard is located on Sinclair Inlet of Puget Sound, just south of Bremerton.

A vibrant and lively waterfront community, Port Orchard is known for an active maritime life. The passenger-only ferry provides easy access to downtown Bremerton and the Seattle/Bremerton Ferry docks. The Marina Park sits at the heart of Port Orchard and offers beach access, boardwalks, summer concerts and a farmers market.

The accessible seclusion of this region has brought an influx of interest in the real estate market in recent years. Nestled between the rugged Olympic Mountain range and the pristine Puget Sound, homeowners in the Port Orchard area find opportunity for panoramic views in a semi-rural setting.
